Mudeford is a harbourside and beach side parish in Christchurch, Dorset.
Property ranges from residential streets to prestigious harbourside homes, and house prices in the area tend to hold up, with property selling quickly once on the market.
Christchurch Removals is a local business and a trusted removals specialist for families moving into and out of homes in the Mudeford and Stanpit areas, including those downsizing to smaller accommodation.
Mudeford was once little more than a fishing village with Mudeford Quay a local fishing hub, and notoriously known for smuggling. Some fishermen are still based here and sell their catch on the quayside.
Mudeford sits adjacent to the entrance of Christchurch Harbour and benefits from wonderful coastal walks and views as well as spectacular beaches at Avon and Mudeford.
The Quay consists of former fisherman’s cottage, and the historic Haven Inn pub. The Christchurch Harbour Hotel& Spa is perched on the waters edge where you will find the famous Jetty seafood restaurant.
